It will be important for the Stars to stay out of the penalty box with the Colorado power play in fine touch. However, how this series has gone, we can expect a few extra-man chances for both teams in this game. 

Goaltending has not been a highlight for Colorado in this series with Alexandar Georgiev unable to withstand the barrage of offence from Dallas. It expected that ythe stars will fire as much as possible on Georgiev and will break through and wrap this series up in a high-scoring game that hits the Over on the Game Total.

  • The away team has won 4 of 5 matches in this series.
  • There have been 6 or more goals scored in 4 of 5 matches in this series. 
  • 7 of the past 10 games between Dallas and Colorado have gone over the Game Total.
  • Dallas have scored 19 goals in 5 games in this series.

Dallas Stars Form


After a couple of games with Jake Oettinger posting a save percentage of over .960 and letting in just one goal in Games 3 and 4, the Colorado offence broke through with five goals in Game 5 and the Minnesota native finished with his lowest save percentage of .815.

Defenceman Miro Heiskanen leads the Stars with 13 points in the playoffs and has taken 30 shots, which is the third most in the Dallas team. The telling tale for the Finnish defenceman is though that his plus-minus is at -3 which has hurt his team despite his offensive production.

Dallas Stars Team News


Tyler Seguin is carrying a lower-body injury and it is uncertain if he will play.

Colorado Avalanche Form


Arturri Lehkonen, Calle Makar and Nathan McKinnon all stood up with 2 points in game 5 to save the series for Colorado in the absence of the league’s leading goalscorer in the playoffs Valeri Nichushkin, who was suspended for failing a drug test.

The Avs powerplay kept firing in this series going two-from-three in Game 5, with both Makar and Lehkonen getting extra-man goals. Colorado are now 5-from-11 on the power play.

Alexandar Georgiev has still been struggling in net for the Avalanche with a save percentage average of just .880 against Dallas in the playoffs.

Colorado Avalanche Team News


Valeri Nichushkin has been suspended for the rest of the season after failing to comply with the league’s drug policy.
